I agree with this post completely. Omitting a Reply-To header in this 
list results in less consistency amongst the mailing lists. If someone 
is accustomed to most of the other Gentoo mailing lists having a 
Reply-To header, it would be quite likely for them not to realise that 
this list is different in that regard. Look at cokehabit for a real life 
example of this.

Neil also has a great point with the fact that this list is for open 
discussion, and thus the default should be for mail being sent to the 
list, rather than the sender alone. It would not be difficult for people 
to click 'Reply to All', but it also would not be difficult for the 
infra team to set a Reply-To header. I would recommend adding a Reply-To 
header to this list, if only for the sake of consistency.
